De Dulle Griet is a time-worn old-school pub, with a wonderful old Flemish interior. The selection of beers is impressive too, with more than 400 different special beers, both local & international. De Dulle Griet has the biggest choice in terms of beers in Ghent!

This is the pub with the special large beer glass. To use the glass you must surrender a shoe to a basket on a pulley at ceiling height. Apparently so many glasses were being spirited away this system was developed to keep the punters honest....More

Great range of beers (though it's hard to choose from so many!). Our waiter Michael was very helpful in helping us choose and was really friendly.
